We picked up Jake on the night of October 31st, just before the trick or treaters arrived in full force. I didn’t put him down for the first few hours. Each time I answered the door the young children forgot they were there for candy and were more interested in the puppy in my arms. He got plenty of attention that first night. But, I was not prepared for the long night ahead of me. Jake cried and whined nearly the entire night. My wife and I were having second thoughts about this puppy thing. But after talking to my friend who raises German Shorthairs we felt confident that things would improve.
